with afghanistan's leader to hash out differences. frantic was today's watch word as secretary of state john kerry made an unannounced visit to kabul meeting with president hamid karzai and smoothing over u.s.-afghan tensions at a joint news conference. >> i appreciate enormously our friendship. and i know that you share with me a sense that this next year could well be one of the most important in the modern history of afghanistan. >> ifill: the show of unity followed new flare-ups as the u.s. winds down its combat mission there. after a deadly bombing this month, karzai was quoted as saying the u.s. colluded with the taliban to destabilize his country and to justify a continued u.s. presence beyond the december 2014 pullout date. today though he denied he had made that charge. >> there is a collusion? i never used the word "collusion" between the taliban and the u.s. those were not my words. those were picked up by the media. >> ifill: kerry in turn said he had reached an understanding with karzai on the matter. >> we're on the same page. i don't think there's any disagreement between us. i'm ve
kerry, the israelis, mahmoud abbas, are going to try to operate. but as barack obama knows, no president ever lost money betting against this issue and he may not, either. >> and then there's iran, to say nothing of complicated problems. it's very clear from the president's signals in recent days and his interview with israeli television, there's a different notion in the united states. we saw this in the threat assessment testimony last week from the intelligence community. the intelligence community here believes that there's a year at least a year before iran is closing that window of vulnerability. the danger point, the red zone. israel has a very different sense of where the red doan starts and when. >> i think when you look at what the president said, he said a year from iran making a decision to pursue, to break out, they could have a bomb. that's a complicated process that involves enrichment, weaponization, a number of processes to get them to a place where they could deliver a nuclear payload. the u.s. and israel have the exact same sets of data about iran's nuclear program. ar
would argue that's one of the many reasons that we're stuck. >> rose: okay. john kerry is the new secretary of state. cares about the middle east? interested. has been as chairman of the foreign relations committee. has many contacts in the region, many trips in the region, its unlikely he would appoint an envoy. he wants to do it himself i would assume. does that make a difference? >> it seems to be the case. it's the secretary of state, he has a certain gravitas. but ultimately you're going to have to have a president who is committed to this issue and i'm not convinced that president obama see this is other as a loser issue for him at this point. >> rose: so finally, aaron, when they come back you don't think we'll have a greater understanding between the two leaders? >> i think you will. and particularly i think on iran. i think netanyahu will continue to give the president the time and space he needs on the israeli/palestinian thing. i don't know, charlie. i really think that this is a tough one and with all due respect to secretary kerry, i wish him well but barack obama is
as well. could this be obama helping to set up secretary of state john kerry for what you talk about is the larger issue of peace negotiations down the line? >> yes, and i believe secretary kerry is very committed to a middle east peace process. i think it's long overdue. and i think the president's got to give him the political cover that secretary kerry would need. and key is going to be the israeli public. and the relationship with president netanyahu. you know you what say candid or business-like in diplomacy, it means that it's not a perfect relationship. but, you know, a lot of leaders, they develop this relationship. a better relationship, over time, and i think that's what the president is doing. >> so as long as the business relationship can produce positive business results it's a good thing. let's talk about iran. the nuclear issue that's a top issue for president obama's agenda. on friday, defense secretary chuck hagel said there are these plans to beef up missiles after north korea said it was going to be trying to have its preemptive nuclear strike against the u.s. or l
-- >> well, he raised the prospects of this peace agreement with the palestinians. he's clearly, john kerry, the secretaries of state made this a priority or wanted to. what are the pluralistic prospects? >> you saw a bit in ramallah when-- >> that's in palestine. >> it's the capital of the west bank, if you will, when he was having a press conference with mahmoud abbas and the american president said, look, let's not have negotiations with pre-conditions and insist that the israelis end settlement activities. and he was effectively scolded by the palestinian president. so, the real nub of the problem here isn't so much the settlements or this or that israeli activity. it's a refusal by the palestinians to make any kind of compromises with the israelis. >> well, let's talk a little about barack obama. he is asking fundamentally the israelis to take a risk on behalf of peace. >> and that's why he wanted to reassure them about the american security commitment? >> well, that's right. but think about what obama's the attitude has been towards the middle east in the first term of the presidency.
to the question. >> interview with fox rosen, john kerry confirmed he injurevisited injured employee o was still recovering. asked if hillary clinton had done the same, the question was deflected. >> do you have more information to provide to us about that, whether congress is able to -- naud secretary clinton. >> secretary kerry? >> they haven't met with her as well. >> there has been misrepor misreporting. >> republicans in the house and senate say they are waiting to hear if the state department and the c.i.a. will make the benghazi survivors available to connial investigators. bret? >> bret: thank you. >> you're welcome. >> bret: ifing the story. try -- we're following the story. we welcome the survivors on "special report." america's veterans are getting short-changed to the tune of billions. that is later in the grapevine. up next, moving the military chess pieces around the board is bound to leave some unhapp unhappy. hey, our salads.

the question is -- you can follow kerry at at @kerryelefield. and we'll talk about whether this resurgence in marriage equality will impact those nine justices on the supreme court who are going to be ruling on this issue not too long from now. 866-55-press if you have a call or comment. i think this is good news or bad news, give us a holler at 866-55-press. >> announcer: is the "bill press show." writing a check jerry springer: she never cashed it (vo) the day's events. four very unique points of view. tonight starting at 6 eastern. um, hello. these ugly stains are ruining my good looks and style. and good luck using that cleaner. excuse me, miss ? he's right. those are tough hard water stains, and that cleaner's not gonna cut it. truth is, 85% of us have hard water and many don't even know it. you need lime-a-way. lime-a-way is specially formulated to conquer hard water stains. it's 4 times more effective at removing lime scale than the leading bathroom cleaner. see the lime-a-way difference or your money back. >> "viewpoint" digs deep into the issues of the day. >> h
. and then he goes on to oman. >> and secretary kerry advanced is here tonight. luke? >> andrea mitchell joining us live from israel, we appreciate you taking the time on your own show and letting me help you out today. hopefully the jib jab diplomacy works for the united states, thanks so much. >> exactly. >>> here in washington kentucky senator rand paul has spent 2013 raising his national profile. first it was the 13-hour filibuster. then a big cpac speech that helped deliver a straw poll victory. and today senator paul is wading into the immigration debate in a big way. putting his support behind a path to legal status for millions of illegal immigrants. joining me now for the daily fix, chris cillizza, msnbc contributor. and managing editor of postpolitics.com and charlie cook, msnbc political analyst and founder of the cook political report. and charlie, i'll go to you first, we'll get chris to chime in on this. i was taken aback that rand paul went out on this limb to a degree, because he was really setting himself up as the right-wing presidential candidate. this separate 0ing up a flag
kerry there talking. president obama is supposed to be awarded the medal of distinction at this dinner. when that happens, we will bring it to you live. again, live pictures there as the president awaits the medal of distinction. martin fletcher is standing by in jerusalem with the very latest for us. good to see you, sir. let's start with the president's speech. how was it received, both in the hall and how was it received by israelis watching it on television? >> reporter: well, i think, craig, it was received very well indeed. surprisingly well. he spoke so clearly and confidently and i think really hit all the points that israelis wanted to hear. one of the surprising things, the reaction of the 600 students from universities around israel that were in the audience, was that they applauded repeatedly. there were several standing ovations. most surprising to me anyway, the more often president obama called for a palestinian state existing in peace alongside israel, the more often he said that, the greater the applause was for the students. it was a real message not only from preside
voted to authorize the use of force. some apologized later like john kerry. some brave people came out against it as you showed. barbara boxer, dick durbin, paul wellstone, but there is a tendency among democrats that really worries me. it's to act as though maybe their patriotism is possibly going to be called into question and they're always appeasing these bullies who question their very americanness and we saw that over and over at 9/11 and particularly in the run-up to war. it was a little bit frightening to be against the war as i was. we weren't really singled out and ridiculed, but we were right. they will go down in history as having done the wrong thing. it requires a lot of vigilance to make sure nothing like that happens again. >> given what the congresswoman said earlier, are we still at risk despite their bold and creative witness of a march to war of this magnitude or is there more accountability today? >> we would hope so. joan is absolutely right. there's bipartisan kulpaablety that dates back to the clinton administration. just look at the scorecard and this is where
, weren't supposed to. morsi trying to kill democracy. john kerry, the secretary of state, the week that obama said that the armageddon. congress said 250 million dollars and meanwhile the military which is very disturbing, not just the f-16's, but the tanks. we're not holding them accountable. i think we've got to try-- we've kept the peace with egypt and israel and we've gotten ourselves on the hook. it's not just there, we have the problem in israel, we have the problem now with the saudis in iran and we have the problem-- >> in the region. >> what i'm amazed by, you know, one of the ways that republicans succeeded was they had two pillars, the anti-government spending and national security. and i think the establishment in washington the republican-- okay, but the truth is that they have really let the national security one go. >> sean: all right. what about, i'm a little stunned, liz, i shouldn't be, but the president seems to me has an opportunity to send a loud message to the rise of radical islamists around the world. he's going to snub the knesset, and not going to visit th
type of foreign policy appeasement. and originally whsecretary of state kerry went to egypt, wanted to meet with him and he refused to and it was not covered, you had protests in the united states of america, in egypt for supporting terrorists and the same in the west bank, leslie referred to, they're defacing pictures of president obama, throwing shoes at it and believe that the supposed to be quote, unquote insinuated in cairo have been turned back again. and when you talk about a two-state solution, you have to have a willing peace partner on the other side and not just that there's not really a two-state. you're talking potentially three-state solution because hamas and gaza strip are totally different than fatah and the west bank. >> sean: and leslie, let me ask you a question, why should the israelis, why should they trust barack obama, who snubbed just beyond the pale snubbed bb netanyahu in the white house, that claimed they should go back to '67 border, we promised israel we would never ask them to do that. obama did it and then on top of that, sarkozy says that bb is a lia
emerging from the united states. what's going on? >> reporter: well, john kerry came out today and said quite clearly that he would not stand in the way of allies of the united states who wanted to arm the syrian rebels. that's not saying the u.s. would do that themselves. they've been very reluctant and the joint chiefs of staff says his understanding of who the rebels were, in fact, got more confused the past year as the rebels gone more extremists. what john kerry's words do is permit the uk and france to begin the process of arming. they've been talking about ev e evading or working around eu sanctions. they are yet to begin the process of handing them over. it's a long, difficult, practical road ahead, but part of the calculation is by saying they'll do it, they might draw president bashar assad towards a negotiation table, put extra pressure on him, wolf? >> joining us from beirut with that story, significant developments. thanks, nick, very much. >>> there are huge problems to tackle in the middle east right now, but the white house is downplaying expectations for the president'
visit, along with the visit of the secretary of state kerry, will help us turn a page in our relations with the palestinians. let us sit down at the negotiating table. let us put aside all pre conditions, let us work together to achieve the historic compromise that will end our conflict once and for all. let me conclude, mr. president, on a personal note. i know how valuable the time and the energies of the american president, of yourself. this is the 10th time we've met since you became president and i became prime minister. you've chosen israel as your first venue in your visit, your foreign visit in your second term. i want to thank you for the investment you have made in our relationship and in strengthening the friendship and alliance between our two countries. it is deeply, deeply appreciated. you have come here on the eve of passover. i've always considered it as our most cherished holiday. it celebrates the jewish people's passage from slavery to freedom. through the ages, it has also inspired people struggling for freedom, including the founding fathers of the united states. s
%. john kerry also won 60% more votes than al gore had won four years before -- had won at 6% 6% morees -- had won votes. there was a huge increase in turnout. in this election, barack obama received 3.5 million fewer votes than he received four years before. a 5% decrease in votes. mitt romney received about 1 million more votes than john mccain. said andmmonly reported that he received fewer popular votes than mccain, and that is because of the delay of california and some of the other west coast states in reporting their numbers, but when they finally came in, he did. obama clearly benefited from a superior micro targeting and turnout effort, building on what the bush campaign had done in 2004 and then the substantial advances the obama campaign made in 2008 and working through a four-year period. they used consumer preferences and things of that nature to identify strong and unwavering obama voters, and then they used personal contact with a message. towards the voter propensities. geared towardsge the voters' propensities. you can see the results in the 12 target states, most of wh
'm glad to see secretary john kerry, john, i know you are and i know you will be successful. i'm not sure that the prophets have had idols, but if they have, they would have said actually he has said, and in that occasion, and i'm quoting him. how beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation. well, you have to be satisfied with my diet language. i cannot speak like him. it is my privilege to present you with our country's highest honor, the medal of distinction. this award speaks to you, to your tireless work to make israel strong, to make peace possible. your presidency has given the closest ties between israel and the united states a new height, a sense of intimacy, a vision for the future. the people of israel are particularly moved by your unforgettable contribution to their security. you're defending our skies. to your relegation and to remain intelligence, which is the right way to preempt bloodshed. the diplomatic and military bonds between us have reached an unprecedented level. when i visi
